Lavender Leaves Notebook

I picked up the bargin of the century a couple of days ago at my local shop.. comosition type notebooks with “O” Wires for … wait for it…. 50p each!!!!!

This morning in the workshop I altered one as a project for Wild Orchid Crafts Youtube Design Team .. you can watch the video for this project on Youtube HEREΒ or alternatively watch the book being made over on my Ustream channel HERE and HERE (2 Parter)

I removed the front and back covers, covered them in a layer of Gesso, then mixed up my own paint colour.. I didnt have purple and I was looking for a lavender colour, and mixed rose pink and cloudy light blue and it gave me the exact colour I was looking for πŸ™‚ the edges of the book I dry brushed with pearl Adirondak paint.

Seaglass & Roses Notepad…

I like to buy the cheap noteboooks from the supermarket and then give them a wee makeover πŸ™‚

They are inexpensive and once altered they make lovely gifts or even great stocking fillers for Christmas!

I made this one this afternoon, plus I have done a video tutorial, but it ran over the 15 minutes, so I need to learn how to edit videos or re-make it again πŸ˜€

Supplies List Used :-

  • Cheap Supermarket Notebook 207mm x 73mm
  • K & Co Seaglass Patterned Paper
  • 3 x Green tone Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Hot Glue Gun
